you need to look at the right column of the mirror-status display, and
there is an explanation at the bottom of the page about what those box's
mean ( the green and red ones ). You will find that your mirror is
actually listed as being updated.

thats a fairly accurate assumption - since the rsync'd for jobs with
dvd's would have taken much longer to complete at that time ( and the
mirror's did age a bit during that period, hence the red blocks start
accumulating a bit ) - but looking down the right column, the mirrors
all look ok. The ones that are invalid / not responding, are the only
ones that seem to stay RED.

hope this clears up the situation ?
